Since Ultimate Beginners Course I have completely moved away from the auto settings and now shoot in both manual and semi-auto modes putting me in control of my photography.

Before taking this Ultimate Beginners Course I would spend too much time fumbling with settings, often unsure as to where to start and usually miss the shot...

Mike's Ultimate Beginners Course filled all the gaps left from the college courses, I'm still practicing both the exercises and the suggested photo shoots to really lock it all in place in my brain and make it second nature.

michael-maloneyThis course is very much worth the money because of the way you teach it. You're right about looking around YouTube and trying to figure it out on my own, with all the video out there it would have taking me a lifetime to figure this all out.

Before the Ultimate Beginners Course I never moved out of auto. Now I have just done a photo shoot for my daughter all in manual mode and it didn't seem daunting at all. I can't  say a big enough thank you!!

Absolutely worth every penny! Before the Ultimate Beginners Course I was an absolute beginner and knew nothing about photography (other than point and shoot in auto mode).

Øystein-ThorsenThere are two main things I got from 7 Building Blocks: 1. Settings don't create a picture - a picture gives the settings. 2. Camera doesn't take the picture - you take the picture.

I definitely recommend this beginners photography course - learn how to use your camera, even if you have owned it for a while. It is eye opening, literally.

This beginners photography course has improved my knowledge of photography and the limitations of a camera irrespective of price or sophistication. I know the reasons why I take poor to mediocre photographs, all that's left to do is practice, practice practice!

Mike is a excellent teacher and his videos can greatly help you in understanding the complexities of photography . Would highly recommend to anybody who is just starting out on this journey.

Dave-PlantCredit has to go to Mike for his down to earth method of teaching. It is very much an enthusiastic user explaining how it can help rather than a software engineer trying to explain how it works.

For quite a while I've been thinking that my photographs were lacking something. I've been taking photographs for about 64 years now and am well up to speed with the technical side of things...

Before the Ultimate Beginners Course I didn't have any sort of system, now after, I can look  and think a lot better about what I am doing when  I take my camera in the hand.

Mike is an awesome teacher. He provides a non-pretentious environment for learning that allows one to relax, have fun and learn.  His structured approach for teaching photography is easy to follow and fun.

Really the folder tree was a great start, knowing that my photos would end up where I want them. Then key words, something that I had never paid any importance to, a very different story now.

I now have a much better workflow system than I did thanks to a more ruthless first edit and the use of Lightroom tools of which I was only vaguely aware.

You get assignments because photography is alike playing a musical instrument: only through practice you will improve.

I now know were the various controls are and what they do. (mostly without looking for them...) I understand depth of field and how to blur the background, I am not quite so sure how to judge focal length but I am working on it .

Knowing how light works, how to use it and what to look for when creating the composition made a huge difference in my photos. Before, luck played a part in my shots - now I know what to do to take nice pictures and going from luck to knowledge is invaluable!

I had stumbled upon Mike’s free videos on youtube and found them to be unique and inspiring.I could relate to them,as he preferred a hands-on approach in comparison to a theoretical lesson from the comfort of a Studio.His enthusiasm and motivation was infectious.
